WinPlanet reviews Radio 8. They say it might be the biggest thing since Pagemaker. "Radio 8 is a jaw-dropping jump forward in accessible online publishing." Yeah!
New tool: Easy Images from the Desktop. Praise Murphy!
Beta: fileSystem Upstream Driver. "It's perfect for people who have a static HTTP server nearby."
Wired: "The architects of the Mono Project, an open-source version of Microsoft's .Net standard, have decided to alter the project's license to make it easier for corporations to contribute code to the initiative."
This is fascinating. I don't get why Garth doesn't just use copy-paste and build exactly the system he wants. I don't care if he does that, any more than Apple cared that Microsoft Word and FullWrite were better than MacWrite, or that Photoshop gave bitmap minded people the tool they totally loved (as opposed to MacPaint). Our code may inspire you, that's the point. But anything that depends on modifying our code is going to break. Also write specs for callbacks, I love adding clever callback hooks to our code.
Seth: "I'm no yes man, but I have to agree with the 'Fascinating' crowd this time."
Watch out world, Jacob Levy has a Radio blog.
Jake: "áéíóú ÁÉÍÓÚ"
Garret: "Had a door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesman stop by today. His product really sucked."
Frontline ran an expose on the excesses of the dotcom boom. I saw it last week. Highly recommended.
Brent: "They are without honor."
Hey I just scratched an itch. I added a new feature to the My Pictures tool. Now I have the option of copying the HTML text to the clipboard. Takes two steps out of the editorial process for me. Every step I get rid of, in a rational way, makes me that much happier. If you want to get the new version, I just released the new bits, follow these instructions to update your copy of the My Pictures tool.
InfoWorld: "Intel and Hewlett-Packard said Monday they will lend support to an effort to create an open-source version of Microsoft's .Net initiative, called Mono."
Jason Levine: "Where will my daily angst come from now?"
Thanks to MacInTouch for the link to Radio and thanks to John Goodnough for the fantastic testimonial.
I found our Windows, Mac OS X and Mac Classic products on Versiontracker. (Also we could use some positive user comments there to balance the not so positive ones.)
On this day in 1998 I was emailing with Sun's Bill Joy on licensing issues for Java.
